Donald Trump reportedly seeking a summit with Colin Kaepernick, Kanye West to talk about race

It's going to be interesting to see if this summit ever takes place. 
I suspect Libs will pressure athletes, including Kaepernick no to attend.  Good move by Trump for extending an olive branch.  Politically, it's a very shrewd move.

CBS Sports reports Donald Trump has reportedly signed off on launching of series of meetings with prominent athletes and musicians to discuss race, and Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback who Trump vilified while running for president, is among those on the invite list, as well as rapper Kanye West. 

Kaepernick famously started taking a knee during the national anthem before NFL games in 2016 to protest injustice against African-Americans, particularly high-profile police shootings of unarmed black men. Other NFL players followed suit, starting a wave of protests from professional and amateur athletes. The protests became a flash point in the NFL last season, angering some fans and splitting owners, coaches and players on how to best address social activism.
